About Nairobi


A herd of zebra dip their heads to graze in the golden grassland, watched intently by a pair of young lions. A giraffe, munching on an acacia tree, gazes at the haze of skyscrapers. Nairobi is a city within the savannah, one contrasting landscape blurs into the other. Have your first safari adventure at Nairobi National Park, before heading out to the Maasai Mara National Reserve, globally famous for its exceptional population of lions, leopards and cheetahs. Away from the wildlife, browse through traditional Kenyan fabrics at the Masai Mara Market, where spicy aromas, colourful crafts and jubilant vendors fight for your attention.

Nairobi used to be a simple railway stop, founded in 1899 and linking Uganda and Kenya's second largest city Mombasa.

After dark, head to Westlands, where Nairobi’s cool kids hang out. Sip champagne at a rooftop bar and enjoy the glittering views of this modern, African capital.

The name Nairobi comes from a Masai phrase meaning ‘cold water’, and the climate is cooler than most African countries.
